105 Ways to Give a Book

Comment Challenge 2010: Prizes

While I was heading down into Virginia Beach’s first significant snowstorm in twenty years, I left you time to sign in as having finished the Comment Challenge. Last night, I wrote down all the people who wrote on the finish line post here or with Lee Wind, adding a few people who had commented on an earlier post. I numbered the folks who made the 100 Commenter Club, and used Random.org to generate three numbers from that group. After all that, the winner of the prize packages are:
Please write me at MotherReader AT gmail DOT com with your address and the prize package you’d most appreciate. An extra prize package was donated from Reading Is Fundamental and I’ve decided to award it to one of the two top commenters: Kelly Polark, who logged in 214 comments! The other big commenter was Kathy Martin, with 223 comments, and who had been randomly selected to win a prize package. Congratulations to all!

I also drew random numbers from the entire group of seventy participants to select winners of prizes just for playing. I’ve tried to make a good match for each, and so...
Winners, please write me at MotherReader AT gmail DOT com with your address so I can get your prizes send your way.

Thanks again to everyone for being part of Comment Challenge 2010. We hope to see you next January, but we also hope that the commenting bug stays with you for the rest of the year. Read. Blog. Comment.

I won a prize?! That's awesome! It's kind of too sappy to say, but I really feel like participating in the community building was its own reward. ANYhoo. Thanks for having this challenge! Now, let's see if we bloggers can continue the community building on our own. I think we can.

Congrats to all the winners! This challenge was such fun :)

Also, MotherReader I don't want to ruin your posting! I appreciate the effort and it's necessary. I just don't want people to forget about Black History Month being celebrated for the rest of the year, not just a month. I too long for the day when the month isn't needed.

But I love all the new books/new information I find so I look forward to your posts :)

Congratulations to the winners!

I failed so monumentally at this challenge. I wanted to comment and find great new blogs but got so bogged down with other projects I never found the time. I'll be sifting through the list of participants over time though. It's a great resource despite the challenge being over.
